Wurlitzer Sideman – another view of the “sequencer”

If only one could buy such a mechanical monster today — preferably with MIDI output. I was told that lots of Sidemen got scrapped simply because that rubber belt broke, and the owners were too old/senile to get it fixed…..sounds like ageism to me.

My question is: 50 years from now, will you be able to plug a modern digital drum machine, and find it still works? Hah.
